646 Tasting Notes
Ok. It breaks my heart to do this, but I have to adjust my rating for (and my obsession with) Cinnamon Somersault based on the rejigged formula for 2014.
It’s just… not what it used to be.
It’s not worse (well—I guess based on my ratings I think it is, but still, it’s not BAD) but it’s different. The orange is gone from the mention, and replaced by nondescript “flavours” and what I’d even call a bit of a spicy kick to the palate.
It’s still interesting but it’s not the tisane I fell in love with. But that’s good, because it means I’m able to continue weaning off T2.
One blend at a time.
Busted out my first tea from my swap with VariaTEA tonight, hooray! She’s been hard at work; I’m seeing a lot of mentions of her on my feed lately :D
I needed something cosy, cheery and caffeine-free tonight, after a terrible night’s sleep last night. I’m a little anxious about tonight! I ended up calling in sick this morning, my sleep was so shot. Anyways, I threw my whole sample of this into a mug and I’ve also eaten a whole block of chocolate. Now I’m gonna take some sleeping tablets and make it to work tomorrow just fine!
Grounded let me know that they’d recently emboldened their Bold Breakfast, so I had to give it another try…
And it’s definitely a much Bolder breakfast these days! Yum. This is full of guts, even with a heaped tsp of leaves in a mug around 12oz big. Both black and with a splash of milk, I’m a fan, and a couple of cups of this really helped with the wake-up process this morning.
Great job, Grounded!
